Ford isn't alone.
Executives from General Motors to BMW are all trying to figure out how long it will take to get production of certain models back to normal as the automakers try to cope with parts shortages following a fire at supplier's facility in central Michigan.
"BMW is working to develop alternative sources for the parts," said Kenn Sparks, head of communications for BMW USA. "The BMW plant in South Carolina has an inventory of parts on hand but until the supply chain stabilizes there will be some interruptions to X5 and X6 production."
It's a similar story at the GM plant in Wentzville, Missouri, just outside of St. Louis. The automaker has suspended production of full-size vans.
Meanwhile, Fiat Chrysler says some production of the Chrysler Pacifica Minivan has also been impacted.
The automakers are hamstrung by the fact that particular parts for certain models are made exclusively by Meridian Lightweight Technologies. Since a sizable portion of Meridian's manufacturing plant has been knocked out due to fire damage, production for some vehicle models has been impacted.
